People Are Freaking Out Over Zayn Malik's New Hair

Zayn had his hair cut over the weekend and it all got a bit much.

Posted on

On Saturday Zayn tweeted this very important selfie showcasing his new hairdo:

Accompanying the One Direction star were producer Naughty Boy, Emeli Sandé, and this moody cat called Naughty Barry.

While it's definitely not limited to a man bun, Zayn's new hair is shaved super short on the side and long on top, making a topknot a total possibility.

But many members of the fandom just weren't ready for this level of beauty.

Thirst levels were out of control.

People came back from the dead.

Fans feverishly created new fan art – Zayn himself tweeted this piece.

In fact, we need to applaud the fandom on how quickly they can turn out these tributes.

The general consensus: Zayn's new hair is a work of art.

However, some did not appreciate these new developments.
